Issue #113  (JavaScript Libraries, Front-end Frameworks, Uncats)


(Skip to the tools section below)


In the intros for this newsletter, I've included lots of quick tips on JavaScript and the DOM. I've received lots of great feedback on the quick tips, and many have purchased my e-book where many of them are bundled. I'll continue to include JS/DOM tips, but I'm also planning to expand into other technologies, possibly including:
  • New stuff in the CSS specs
  • Sass tips
  • Popular libraries like React and AngularJS
Of course, the main focus of the newsletter will continue to be the categorized tools lists. But I like to strike a balance. As I've mentioned before, I want this to be more than just a dry roundup. I also want to ensure the quick tips are useful but not too lengthy.

If you have any ideas for quick tips you'd like to see more of, let me know by responding directly to this email. I'd love to get new ideas related to the types of technologies you're working with today.
